Material Models of Metals for Crash Simulation
Besides an appropriate spatial discretisation of the structure and a profound knowledge of the required load cases, appropriate material modelling is a key ingredient for predictive crash simulations. The load carrying structure of a car today still mainly consists of metallic materials. The materials to be described are diverse. The seminar deals with the following materials:
- Mild and high strength steels,
- Cold formable AHSS and UHSS steels,
- Hot formable and quenchable boron steels,
- Wrought Al and Mg alloys,
- Cast Al and Mg alloys.
Who should attend?
The course addresses engineers working in the field of crash simulation and heads of simulation departments interested in the important topic of material modelling.
- Overview of metallic materials used in cars
- Influence of material structure on mechanical behavior
- Phenomenological material models for metals
- Overview of experimental methods for material characterization
- Identification of material parameters from experiments
- Discussion of the sensitivity material parameters
